WISCONSIN WEATHER SUMMARY
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE MILWAUKEE/SULLIVAN WI
440 AM CDT SAT JUL 23 2016
It was another very warm and humid day across Wisconsin, with
highs climbing into the upper 80s to lower 90s. This allowed heat
indices to climb well into the 90s across much of the central and
southern parts of the state. Skies were partly to mostly cloudy
through the afternoon, with increasing clouds by evening.
Warm and humid conditions lingered across southern Wisconsin,
with northern Wisconsin a bit drier. Areas of fog formed across
portions of southern Wisconsin, with patchy fog elsewhere. Some
middle to high clouds moved east across the region. Temperatures
so far ranged from the upper 50s in far north central Wisconsin,
to the mid to upper 70s across far southern Wisconsin.
Very warm and humid conditions will linger across the region today
into Sunday. South winds and some sunshine will continue to bring
heat index values in the middle to upper 90s over southern and
central Wisconsin, with lower values to the north. Heat Advisories
are in effect for portions of southern Wisconsin during this time.
Areas of fog should linger into the middle morning hours, with
some dense fog possible. A warm front will then move northward
into the region this afternoon and this evening. An area of
showers and thunderstorms is expected to develop in central
Minnesota this afternoon.
It should then shift east and then southeast through Wisconsin
tonight into early Sunday morning. Heavy rainfall and severe
weather is possible during this period, especially over the
western half of Wisconsin.
A cold front will then bring some chances for showers and storms
Sunday morning, with chances lowering during the afternoon as it
exits the region.
High pressure moving into the region Sunday night into Tuesday
will bring a period of dry conditions, along with somewhat cooler
and less humid conditions.
